    Take out one ink cartridge. Look for a small green electronic board with gold contact points. Clean that with a fresh cotton bud. Do the same with the contact points inside the slot where the cartridge goes. Make sure no lint is left behind. Do this to all cartridges. Don't use your finger. The natural oils from your skin might smudge and worsen the problem. 

    If that doesn't work, try this.

    All epson printers use a chip on the front of the ink cartridge..so u can get a chipping kit-not very much,and if you refil original cartridges,or buy cartridges not made by epson,then u will need a chipping kit..because even if you had bought original epson,brand new,and ...eg..u made mistake say putting new cart in your printer,so you pulled it back out,to refit cart properly,then the epson software is liable to see that cart as used..saying not much ink left..etc
